Decorating your walls with vinyl decals

I am loving the wall words that are out right now. When you see this stuff, you'll think, "Oh, how cute!" And you'll buy one of them, put it up, and after you stop cursing (they are kind of a pain), you'll realize, holy crap, these are TOO COOL! Then you will look all over your house for spots to put more of them!

They are basically just vinyl cut outs that you rub and transfer to the wall. 

Here are a few I've done in our home...

I've been using them in my client's homes too. They are just fun and cute! Just a warning -- you'll really love them (I promise) and will seriously roam around your house trying to figure out where to put the next one. Just try to take it easy with them -- you can go overboard. The nice thing about them is you can put them on other decorative items (like a tile on an easel) so they are not just all over your walls.

Any vinyl signage store can make these for you. You probably have about five of these places near you and don't even realize it. They offer a great selection of fonts and colors. And they can get them to you in a day or two. For a short phrase the price isn't too bad at all!

  1. I'm having a party in like two weeks. I love them too!!! I don't have any but I am planning on using them all over!!!

  2. I found a great shop on www.etsy.com that does custom vinyl lettering / wall quotes for just 14.99!! I was so excited (and wanted to share) as everywhere else seems to be SO expensive! The shop is called 'vinylsay'
    I'm planning to have an excerpt from a Robert Frost poem (two roads diverged in a wood, i took the one less traveled, and that has made all the difference) done for my tree/naturey bathroom. I'm also really in to stenciling song lyrics on my walls so I might get something else for the bedroom - I love hanging a big funky frame (sans glass) around the words!
    Just wanted to share!!

  3. I love your decorating style! Martha Stewart, look out! Have you ever tried making wind chimes? I see such a trend in wind spinners like these. I think they're charming, don't you agree?
